SHARED FUTURE: 'Touch' and 'Seer' with Maria K

'Shared Future', Empire Gallery, Vyner St, London.
4th - 21st March 2009

I recently exhibited two works I made with Icelandic photographer Maria Kjartansdottir at Empire Gallery in London.

I have known Maria for quite a few years now. I have always admired the delicate balance in the subtlety and intensity of colour and emotion she puts into her pictures. She has a great eye for figurative motion and divides her compositions into soft tones of colour and detail and deep blacks.

We have since long discussed the potential of combining elements of our individual work to produce something we consider as a fusion of light, colour, motion and detail. The two works I contributed to in Shared Future tell the story of this discussion.

[above] 'touch' [below] 'seer' are mixed media images: Monoprint on C-type photographic print, editions of 7.

SHARED FUTURE: Interview with Maria k

The work in this exhibition deals with subjects that concern us all; circumstances and emotions that we have all felt and are aware of, but often seldom consider and express. In this video Maria talks about some of her pictures and their origins.

I produced and co-edited this video interview with UK-based independent media collective ccmedia.
